The argument became so heated that the moderator felt forced to delete the thread.
Harlosa, deep in the conservative farming country outside the city of Lund, is set, within just a few weeks, to see its own home for twenty refugee youths opened in a house in the centre, just across from the local petrol station and supermarket.
“The village is really split about it,” a 55-year-old care worker, who did not wish to be named, told the Telegraph.
“Those who are very ‘refugee-friendly’ jump on top of anyone who is worried or afraid. They are my friends, but if I told them what I thought, they wouldn’t want to be my friend any more. They would think I was racist.”
It’s an argument which is being repeated this week in villages across the Scandinavian country, where no fewer than 35,000 ‘unaccompanied refugee children’, many from Afghanistan and Somalia, arrived in 2015 alone.
To house them, buildings from disused schools to empty holiday camps, everywhere from its Arctic north to its far southern tip, have been requisitioned, with the number of accommodation centres increasing tenfold to more than a thousand in less than five years.
Since Monday, when one of these residents, Youssaf Khaliif Nuur from Somalia, brutally killed one of his minders, the anxiety bubbling beneath the surface is starting to come out.
“Those who are very ‘refugee-friendly’ jump on top of anyone who is worried or afraid”
Mr Nuur’s first appearance in court last Thursday has added to suspicions, long voiced by the anti-immigration Sweden Democrat party, that many of the unaccompanied youth are not really children at all (Mr Nuur claims to be 15, but is six feet tall).
At the same time, fears are growing that large numbers of them are not psychologically stable. Workers at the home where Nuur lived in Molndal, outside Gothenburg, reported him as a risk to local psychiatric services long before the attack took place.
“I don’t believe that they’re children,” complained Mrs Rubin in Harlosa. “They lie about their age. I know they do. Many of them have had some very bad experiences and they have very misogynistic opinions. They treat women badly.”
Monday’s stabbing was by no means an isolated event. Figures obtained by a Swedish newspaper on Friday showed that police have recorded more than 5,000 incidents involving migrants just since October, with 559 assaults, 450 fights, and four rapes.
“I fear that there may be even more trouble,” Sweden’s police commissioner Dan Eliasson told SvD after the figures were released.
“There is a difficult accommodation situation for many people, it’s crowded, some people bring with them the baggage of traumatic events.“
Even the sleepy area around Harlosa has experienced refugee crime, with a group of asylum seekers from the tent camp in the nearby village of Revingeby at the start of January surrounding a woman as she was bringing her children back from school. One of the men then held her down and forcibly kissed her before she got away.
The tent camp, which could have housed some 200 refugees, was closed last week. But other centres are opening.
In the nearby village of Sodra Sandby, some 35 refugee children are housed in a school building. The local Killeback school meanwhile is being used to teach the new arrivals Swedish.
“People are talking about it a lot,” complained Gabriel Genarp, a local teacher. “They have placed them among children who are only twelve years old, and some of these unaccompanied youth are 16 years old or even 20. People do not feel comfortable about it.”
In Malmo, a nearby city where some 40 per cent of the population are first or second-generation immigrants, women are taking up self defence classes to protect themselves.
At the Enighet martial arts centre, Sahara Sultani, 20 was on Thursday night skipping around the mat throwing punches and kicks at opponents, one of a class that was almost half female.
“It was my mother who made me come here,” she explained, stopping to sip water and rearrange her karate suit and Lycra hijab. “She is always reading in the news about people getting abused on the streets, so she said ‘come here so that you can protect yourself’.”
Others are taking more extreme measures.
On Friday night a gang of close to a hundred masked men, who police believe to be linked to football hooligan groups, marched in central Stockholm, reportedly singled out and beat up immigrants in the centre of Sergels Torg, Stockholm’s main square, in the first significant reaction to Mezher’s murder from neo-Nazi groups.
Shortly before the attacks, leaflets were distributed saying the marchers aimed to “take a stand against” the “North African street children who are roaming about” and give them “the punishment they deserve.”
The Swedish Resistance Movement, a neo-Nazi group, celebrated the march on its website, printing the full text of the leaflets.
“We urge all others who see the problems to follow in our footsteps, both in Stockholm and in other locations around the country,” the leaflets read.
Such Neo-Nazi groups have long been the favoured bogeymen of right-thinking Swedes, but after a year when the country took 160,000 asylum seekers, one for every 60 inhabitants, their concerns are becoming more widespread.
